it comes to stars like the texas rangers nelson cruz. when it comes to the detroit tigers, jhonny peralta. are they going to accept that suspension and take it now and if a guy like nelson cruz does that, then he would be able to rejoin his team by the time the playoff starts. the trick there, is the team going to make the playoffs without one of its big stars. if he decides, instead, to fight the suspension and as we said, these guys can play during their appeal, he can help his team during that time, but depending on how the timing works out with that appeal, hey, maybe that suspension kicks in instead right during the postseason. we have to wait and see how these guys decide to handle it. we know how a-rod is going to handle it. he said he will fight everything tooth and nail. >> so interesting to see how this affects the race for the pen pe p peninate. i know you have a question for my next guest here. how did major league baseball and a-rod get to this point? let's go back to january when the "miami news times" broke the story. cnn's john zarrella covered it. >> reporter: called biog
